Best MacBook Air cases in 2023

The best MacBook Air case will not only protect your MacBook Air safe from scrapes and scratches on that beautiful finish, but will also allow you to add your own personal flair to your MacBook. Unlike the best MacBook Air sleeves, you can keep your case on while you're working, so you're never without protection, and you're always working in style. Here are the best MacBook Air cases available today. 

Note: These cases were made for the 2020 MacBook Air models. Since the 2022 M2 MacBook Air has slightly different dimensions, the hard shell cases may not fit. However, sleeves will fit just fine. Instead, check out the best cases for MacBook Air M2 (opens in new tab)

A MacBook Air case for everyone

As we mention in our MacBook Air with M1 review, the laptop is extremely light and portable, and the best MacBook Air cases mentioned above are a significant investment to keep it looking great and free from scuffs. Don't forget; these cases only fit the MacBook Air — if you use a MacBook Pro, you'll need the best MacBook Pro cases. The newer MacBook Air (M2, 2022), which we recently reviewed, is shaped differently. Though the width and depth match the previous models, the height is different. Instead of the wedge shape ranging from 0.16 to 0.63 inches, the 2022 model has a uniform height of 0.61 inch. This may affect the fit of the cases on this list so make sure to double check before purchase.

For the MacBook Air, our top pick is the Batianda Design Case, because of the large assortment of incredible designs it comes in, and it's vented shell, which helps your laptop stay cool even during the most intense workloads. Plus, you also get a matching keyboard cover, screen protector, and cleaning brush. It's an excellent 4-in-1 deal, and a great value. 

Of course, if you want protection because you're worried you'll damage your MacBook Air, the ProCase slim hardshell case will quell your fears. Its multi-layered design is perfect for absorbing shocks, and its hard shell will keep scratches at bay.

Lastly, if you're mostly looking for a case that adds a little pizzazz to your MacBook Air, the MOSISO MacBook Air case has a ton of colorful designs to choose from, making it the perfect accessory to glam up your tech.
